Must I make an Business Research Visit to Manitoba before submitting my MPNP application?

No. The Business Research Visit is optional for an applicant. However, the MPNP encourages an applicant to conduct such a visit for a minimum of five working days (not including holidays and travel days). This visit will allow an applicant to identify and assess potential business opportunities as well as experience Manitoba’s quality of life. This Business Research Visit must be conducted no more than one year prior to submission of the Expression of Interest (EOI).
